Amazilia or Loja Hummingbird

Amazilis [amazilia or alticola] (= Amazilis amazilia) (Lesson, RP; Garnot, P 1827)

The amazilia hummingbird is a hummingbird in the family Trochilidae. It is the only species placed in the genus Amazilis. In its range it is easily recognized by the combination of a black-tipped red bill and mainly rufous underparts.Additionally, the Amazilia hummingbird has species with blue-throats, white-throats, and green throats(amazilis amazilia amazilia). The male species typically has a flat red bill and a green belly, with no white patch on the underside. The females are very similar, however they can oftentimes have more white on their throat. Younger birds of this species have a brown hint on the outside of their feathers on the upperparts of their bodies. These birds are of medium size. These birds do migrate, however they do breed year-round. It is a territorial species. Source: Wikipedia
